Rainbow hippies arrested after Nederland brawl
daily camera ^ | July 16, 2008 | Heath Urie

Five members of the “Rainbow Family” — a loose-knit band of hippies that preaches love, tolerance and peace and is best known for its large gatherings every July — were arrested Tuesday night by Boulder County sheriff’s deputies after a violent brawl broke out at the group’s campsite near Ward.

at a fight had broken out among a group of a dozen people camping out in the area of Ruby Gulch, located on state Forest Service property ...

When deputies arrived, witnesses reported that one man, a Nederland resident aged 34 or 35, was hit in the back of the head multiple times with a shovel and possibly stabbed in the neck during the fight...

Some witnesses reported a second person being stabbed...

everyone allegedly involved in the fight was part of a “splinter group” of Rainbow Family members who earlier this month were kicked out of a campsite in Pinedale, Wyo., after the group became “very violent” during a national assembly.

Lindsey said about 100 members of the larger gathering have so far made their way to the Nederland area.

A “violent brawl”. I don’t think I’ve ever heard of a “non-violent brawl”. But, then, these are hippies.

Decade or so ago the Rainbow tribe took over the puplic hot springs here east of Eugene.

KV wanted to drive down because he heard the woman hippies were all naked.

So I drove down with the windows up and doors locked and like riding through an open zoo the animals started attacking our van like zombies in a horror show.

The State now has cleaned up the place got rid of the tribe so families with proper attire can enjoy the public hot springs.

And around town the babies/infants with no shoes or diapers I always wondered where do they go potty?

It must be a truly humbling experience to have your ass whipped by a bunch of hippies.

The pictures indicate that they are not a repository of obesity. the Tophudabeest population has been overly hunted and trapped. The principle source of food of the rainbows is now an endangered species and rainbow children are going hungry.

You could always just cut into a steak -- most of them will simply pass out. Slap a few of them ... open handed, of course. Take care of the rest by brandishing an HK. Probably don't even need to aim it or fire -- their fear of firearms should take over, and they'll flee.

Hippies are among the lowest forms of life. Too bad they have taken over society.
